Lots of Whiteness!

I am so behind with everything, because we have been out and about so much. Luckily, two of this week's blog parties have the same theme - WHITE, so I can combine them, woohoo!

As my Nikon is once again in for repairs, and my little point and shoot isn't all that brilliant, I have pulled out some old photos, which some of you may remember from a couple of years ago, for this week's White Wednesday over at Faded Charm, and The Colour White over at the Etsy Cottage Style blog. But I am kind of hoping that you are as bad as me and can't remember that far back, LOLOL.

I am forever fascinated by the amazing variety of doilies you can find in charity shops or at boot fairs, hardly ever do you find two the same. So, for this week's WHITE post, I am showing you just a few of the doilies I have in my collection -

Blogger is driving me nuts at the moment, it is taking me forever to upload the photos, as Blogger keeps coming up with error messages, sigh. I have to try each photograph at least a dozen times before I can get it uploaded. So I am going to give up. Which is probably quite a relief for you, lol.

I love your doily collection, Liz! They are wonderful pieces of needlework. As to remembering the pictures - NOPE but I would certainly have remembered the ones you weren't able to upload, LOL.
Have a great evening!

I love old does not begin to describe it! I am at my inlaw's home where they are mpving from the old family home and giving things away. I am getting great ephemera and have been told there are a pile of old tableclothes in the basement that have "good lace" on them. How fun is that? I never have enough!!!
Thanks for sharing these beauties!
